However, while the rest of the country has been busy watching which of the top players will take out the men’s and women’s titles and spending the week traipsing from court to court in the opening rounds, ghd were behind the scenes, ensuring the female players looked suave ahead of the competition.

Taking place on Sunday evening in Melbourne, the IMG Players Party gathered all the tennis stars the night before the Australian Open began. A ghd x Australian Open styling suite ensured the women were well-prepared for the event, with award-winning celebrity stylists Joey Scandizzo and Hermiz Daniels, along with ghd educator Anika Bowen, styling a bevy of female tennis icons.

Utilising the ghd platinum and ghd curve range, the team styled the locks of Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova from Russia, US players Madison Keys and Victoria Duval, and former world number one Victoria Azarenka, from the Republic of Belaruse.

Used to shining on court, the stars were as impressive on the red carpet, sporting (yes, that counts as a pun) elegant up styles, soft waves and classic curls.
